|The Fred Waring Show - 8 October 1950|
An episode of "The Fred Waring Show". This variety show is a mixed bag. The highlight is the fun and entertaining "Autumn in New York" sequence (sadly with some sprocket-hole damage). The low-point is the entire second-half, which recreates a turn-of-the-century minstrel show. It's embarrassing, but even if I were to ignore the out-dated blackface, it just plain isn't funny. Painfully corny. Then again maybe you'll like it...

|Classic Fifties Commercial: General Electric Dish Washer (1952)|
A Classic Fifties commercial for a General Electric Dish Washer from circa 1952. It's amazing that General Electric is still going after all these years. Plus, this is a very good 1950's commercial, showing some of the methods of advertising used at the time. I can only hope that General Electric themsleves don't mind me uploading this vintage commercial.

A classic commercial for Du Mont Laboratories Television Sets. I took this from an episode of "School House" that somebody uploaded.
